HENRY Co., Ill. (KWQC) - A 15-year-old from Orion was flown to a hospital after a 3-vehicle accident in Henry County on Wednesday.

The Henry County Sheriff's Office was called to the accident on Rt. 150 @ 1500 N, just north of Orion.

Officials say a 2010 pickup truck driven by 16-year-old John Foley of Andover, was northbound and was stopped to turn left onto 1500 N. At that time, a 2009 Dodge, driven by 20-year-old Addyson Hanson, of Milan, was also northbound and ran into the back of John's stopped truck according to officials.

After being hit, officials say John's truck was pushed into the southbound lane and hit a 2012 Kia, driven by 15-year-old Lilly Bergstrom, of Orion.

John refused treatment, Addyson was taken to the hospital by ambulance and Lilly was flown from the scene with unknown injuries.

Officials say Addyson was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
